steve cohen friend of our show, democrat from tennessee, the first district there said this in "the washington post" in an op eth. we ask that your departments take no enforcement action against anyone who acts in compliance with the laws of colorado, washington and any other states that choose to regulate access to marijuana for medicinal or personal use. it is not just the elected officials or the liberals. you have people who were in law enforcement, law enforcement against prohibition. this is the leap letter. after 40 years of the drug war people no longer look upon law enforcement as heroes but as people to be feared. this is particularly true in poor neighborhoods and those people of color and -- and those of people of color and it impacts our ability to fight real crime. i'm joined with michael tricia, ana and we invite a criminal defense. sara, what happens? how does this work if there's a federal -- one federal law but the state makes up a law in colorado, the people have spoken. in colorado, they said listen, we want legalization. >> they voted for this. so good question.
